The transient receptor potential channel TRPC6 is a non-selective cation channel which modulates the calcium level in eukaryotic cells (including sensory receptor cells) in response to external signals. Calmodulin (CaM) is a ubiquitously expressed Ca(2+) binding protein that is an important mediator of Ca(2+)-dependent regulation of the TRPC6 channel. One CaM binding site was identified within the C-tail of TRPC6. The aim of this study is to map in detail the CaM and inositol (1,4,5)-triphosphate receptor binding (CIRB) domain in the C-terminal region of mouse TRPC6 that is capable of interacting with CaM using in vitro binding assays. Besides the set of positively charged amino acid residues Arg852, Lys856, Arg864, Lys859/Arg860, a hydrophobic Ile857, at the position 1 in 1-5-10 motif, was located and the effect of replacing it with a neutral residue was tested using fluorescence anisotropy measurement. Participation of Ile857 could indicate a strong role of this conserved CaM binding motif.
